Blackberry Oat Pancakes
I start with a basic from the box mix. I know, it's cheating, but I'm okay with that in this case because I need all the help I can get in the mornings! My latest choice is a Hungry Man where you add an egg to the batter. Since extra protein is always nice! So, if you make the smallest recipe, add 1/2 cup of oats, 1/4 cup of wheat germ and a bunch of fresh blackberries. If you're making a bigger batch, increase accordingly. I've been buying my blackberries at Costco and they are fantastic!!! Blueberries also work really well. And sometimes we combine them. :)
Stir it all together and mash up the berries until they are in smaller pieces. Then cook 'em up! I love mine with a little crunchy peanut butter. My kiddos love a little Nutella, sugar-free syrup or light whipped cream and some more fresh berries on top. K, my mouth is kinda watering right now.....
